Re: 10 years a roadster!

Imagine kids of today doing the engine swap that Jackson describes. Not happening! Kids today (i'm generalizing I know) can't even handle a crescent wrench. Sad , really.

Re: Then disaster struck !

I expect that a jealous Chevy owner now has this treasured piece on his kitchen table or fireplace mantle. Can't trust a guy who wears a bow tie. LOL
